Germany: an allowance of 100 euros per child as part of the relief package. Here is what you need to know!

Energy costs in Germany continue to rise. Therefore, families with children are about to receive financial support to improve the health of their household budgets. The German government has adopted a package of relief for citizens, and one of its elements is a one-off allowance for families. The Bundestag has yet to give its approval.

Here is the information on when the money should hit the accounts of those eligible and how much is involved.

How much will the family allowance in Germany amount to?

An allowance of €100 will be paid for each child.

When will the money be paid?

The amount is to be paid in July 2022 in a one-time payment. The federal government’s plan is for the money to hit the accounts of those eligible on the same date as the Kindergeld benefit payments for July.

Who is eligible?

A one-time allowance of €100 per child is to be given to families eligible to collect Kindergeld benefits in July.

Do you need to apply for the money?

There is no need to submit a separate application for child allowance. Family income is also not taken into account in the process of granting the benefits.
